In a busy week, you may find it hard to get to H&H until the weekend. Not to worry, this week's edition is a gentle and romantic introductio to the new season that is waking us all up. It makes great weekend reading, but you may wish you had the print version. •A Studio That Refuses to Think Small: Perfect for our contest this month (methinks someone at the Times has caught the small is cool bug), Giuseppe Pica's 300 s/f apartment is a work of art and the story is great too.
- Starting Over in a Caliph's Castle: Rumor has it that Mitchell Owens took over a year to track this story down, but we're glad he did. Tahir Shah's home in Casablanca is a lovely respite from the city. When do WE get to move to the country?
- Lee Day and Ursula Endlicher's apartment by nArchitects has a beauty shot in Currents.
- Lost Found Art in Stanford, CT - a source for artwork made from vintage collectibles. Odd but cool resource.
- Our friend Jim is in the Paper! Jim's Garbage Scout hits the big time!
- Marianne Rohrlich tracks down Spring Linens and we like these from Marimekko that are sold at Crate & Barrel.
- Q. I have a back porch to furnish on a tight budget. Where to begin? Outdoor sources from Mitchell Owens.
- Shrubs, With Tenderness and Chainsaw: "These chilly spring days are perfect for planting" [obviously we're talking about last week] says Anne Raver in a great season opener.
- A Feminine Mystique All Her Own: At home with Phyllis Schlafly
